Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Head to Market Square Kauppatori and Kamppi Shopping Centrefor some retail therapy. Do some cultural sightseeing at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Teijo national park (in Pernio), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Kotka (Linden Esplanade & Museum of Aviation). Spend the 24th (Tue) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's much more to do: wander the streets of Katajanokka, cruise along King's Road, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and look for gifts at Artisaani.
